Hi Ed
 
Welcome to MV! Yes, tickets are still available, 30 as of three days ago:

There are 30 tickets left for this amazing event, so still time to book yours if you haven't done so already. A look back through this thread will explain how to book - send me an 'Instant Message' (IM) through the forum or email me at first name@last name[dot]com

- and only two sold since then.
 
You'll understand the need for private communication by IM or email - nothing cloak and dagger, I just don't wish to publish my postal address here (though it does in fact appear in the MV members-only archives on the Website).
 
We'd love to see you and your son at the show, so drop me an IM, or an email if you prefer, and I'll respond with the info you need.

This is a query which is probably one for Snoopy if he's coming to ThoD (because he always takes good photos!).  
I remember after one concert  some photos appeared of the post-gig gathering with people's names which miraculously appeared when you hovered the mouse over. I was wondering if we could have something similar for ThoD so that some of us could do a bit of identification homework (and stop accosting total strangers at gigs). I'm not suggesting a photo like we had at school. Anyone who didn't want to be identified could of course stay anonymous.

Hi Janice,
 
Probably the easiest way to do this would be to put the relevant photos in the Facebook group, that way people can tag themselves and anyone else they know.  I'll try and remember to do that after the event.
 
Cheers!

ThOD revisited on Smash Flops: 19th September 2009
« Reply #44: 11.08.09 at 00:37 »

I've now added a promotion for this event to the Smash Flops front page at http://www.peteatkin.com/pa.htm#gigs. There's also a dedicated temporary e-mail address, lantern@midnightvoices.com, where even non-members can contact Carole for bookings. Also a seat availability counter and a link to a Google map showing the Lantern Theatre and the (ex-Marriott) Kenwood Park Hotel where we're holding the post-gig reception.  
 
Tickets have been printed and laminated, and will be mailed out this week to all those who've so far booked, paid and included an SAE. If you can't remember whether you completed your booking, drop Carole a line.
 
Just 30 tickets remain unsold for the Lantern event -- not such a rush as in 2006, not yet anyway, but Carole is confident of a sell-out.
 
I'll follow up this post with a more general plug with all the right keywords to register on a relevant Google blog search.
 
Steve

All paid-for tickets have just gone in the post. Depending on the variety of stamp you affixed, you should get them sooner, or later.  
 
Any queries - you know where to find me Smiley

Lantern Theatre - Google Map
« Reply #46: 28.08.09 at 11:10 »

'Smart' usually implies 'Wrong'. So it is with Google Maps.
 
Since I created the map page showing the precise locations of the Lantern Theatre and the Kenwood Hall Hotel, the Googlemonster has realised that it has other entries for these venues, and has cleverly added them to my page.
 
These are the ones with photos, marked 'unverified listing', locations 'A' and 'D' as I open the page today. But they're wrong -- they direct you only to the centre of the postcode, not the actual building!
 
If you don't know the area and you're using the map for navigation, please be sure to note the two entries bearing my name and no photo. They are the correct ones.
 
Oh yes, and my thumbnail is also correct:
 

 
Full interactive map including real and spurious locations here.

Sheffield tickets: 21 seats left (as of today)

Only 15 days to go to the MV event of the year. Disappointingly (understatement) there are still tickets available - see Smash Flops front page for up-to-date count.
 
A big thankyou to all who have supported this event and booked their tickets already. What I need now is for those last tickets to be sold. If you haven't booked because you think it's bound to come around again in the future, don't be too sure. If I can't even sell out an 84-seat venue now, it's unlikely I'll be enthused to fail to sell out next time, or even feel like asking Pete.
 
So, once again, I'm encouraging all who haven't booked and could attend to do so quickly. It will be a great night in a wonderful venue.

I think this link should hide the offending entries.

C'mon any wavering folks - fill those last few seats - you know you want to be there - and we want a full house - and what a house ; small intimate - and put on by a highly specialised team ; as far as I know these promoters don't put on anyone else  Smiley

Hi All,
I've been a reader of the forum for a while and I have now done the sensible thing and joined it !
Please humour a newbie and tell me what does ThOD stand for ?
Really looking forward to Saturday night at The Lantern.
Many thanks to Carole and Steve (and of course Pete) for making it possible.
Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris,
Welcome to Midnight Voices.  
ThoD stands for Theatre of Dreams.
The first gig of the revival was the Monyash Festival organised by Steve Birkill in 1996 and the term originated, I believe in 1999 when a second concert was held at Monyash:
http://www.peteatkin.com/fodpub.htm  
There may be an earlier reference in the email archives
This was the Field of Dreams and was followed by:
The School of Dreams (Milton Keynes) 2000
The Cinema of Dreams (Hebden Bridge) 2001
The Pub of Dreams (Sutton) 2004
The Theatre of Dreams (Sheffield) 2006
 
I don't think I've missed any out.  
See you on Saturday.
I'm checking the tickets with Nedd.

The first concert was 16th August 1997 - I only know that because it was just 2 days after my second daughter was born, so I felt I couldn't really get away with allow myself a trip to Monyash!

Thanks for the explanation Jan and Simon !
That also explains why there are references to *OD elsewhere so I have two explanations for the price of one Smiley
It shows me what I've already missed Sad
Am I worthy to mix with such luminaries ?
At least I did get to Hove in April, thanks to the information provided by this forum and the website.
Saturday promises to be an excellent ThOD II - the sequel.
See you there.

Huh! Google seems to have changed it again. Try this one -- it's getting late now, but I'll ask Snoopy to investigate tomorrow.

Advice needed. I shall be coming across from Manchester (dropping my middle son off for his first semester at Manchester Uni). Google maps suggests three possible routes: the A57 (snake path), the A623 or the A628. Any suggestions about the best one to take?
